Interview with Ricky

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Ricky: The only clothes you could bring into the ACI were the shoes, socks and underwear you came in with. Everything else was provided or would have to be bought out of the prison store.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Ricky: You were issued two prison jumpsuits upon arrival. They were cotton tops and bottoms. The tops were short sleeve and v- neck, and the bottoms looked like sweatpants. Neither had pockets. Blue was for general population, orange was for segregation, and brown was for protective custody.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Ricky: There was nothing that differed from anything else anyone got. Everyone was issued the same thing.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Ricky: No I don't think so.
